Tips for a Pet-Friendly 4th of July

Keep your pet safe through July 4th Celebrations and the summer with these simple tips.

Dogs don’t sweat like humans and can suffer heatstroke far more easily.

Check the temperature on the ground; if it’s too hot to touch, then it is TOO HOT for their PAWS.

Have water on hand during hot days to avoid dehydration.

Never leave your dog in a parked car on a warm day. In minutes, the temperature inside a car can soar to dangerously high levels, leaving pets at severe risk of heatstroke and even death.

Loud, crowded events are no fun for dogs. Resist the urge to bring your pet to the festivities. They will be safe and comfortable at home.

Be sure your dog is tagged or microchipped in case your furry friend gets loose or runs away.

Enjoy a safe and worry-free Independence Day. Have a great holiday & summer season!
